What is it with meth and chicken coops?

from YahooNews

Naked man arrested after doing ‘way too much meth’ and breaking into chicken coop

A naked man who allegedly broke into a chicken coop after he did "way too much meth” has been arrested.

Jeffrey Falls was arrested earlier this month after police responded to a call from a homeowner in Louisiana who said there was a nude man in his chicken coop, according to local reports.

When police arrived at the scene, they found Mr Falls naked and attempting to clean the coop’s floor with his hands.

Officers noted Mr Falls had dilated pupils and was behaving erratically.

He admitted to officers that he had done meth and hallucinated, then complained that the door of his vehicle was not answering him when he tried to talk to it.

The homeowner told police he did not know the man and unsurprisingly did not want him in his coop.

Mr Falls has been taken into custody charged with criminal trespassing, simple criminal damage to property and disturbing the peace.

Bail has been set at $900 (£700).

Although methamphetamine does not always cause hallucinations, regular use of the drug can lead to psychosis in some users.

A mugshot of Mr Falls has not yet been made publicly available.

The incident is one of a number of meth-related arrests involving chicken coops in recent years.

In 2018, local news in Arkansas reported that police arrested Dustin Manues after chasing him into a chicken coop and found he was carrying a loaded handgun and 51 grams of meth.

In 2016, a man suspected of running a meth-trafficking operation in Georgia managed to evade arrest by hiding in a chicken coop and using the birds as cover.

He was eventually captured and taken into custody four months later.

Meth has become the go to excuse for all whacko behavior.
Better a drug charge than a mental hospital.

These things happen

Driver 'blows up' car with 'excessive' use of air freshener

A driver caused an explosion in his car when he lit a cigarette after spraying air freshener.

He used "excessive" amounts of the aerosol scent before sparking up, according to firefighters.

Gas from the spray ignited, blew out the windscreen and windows and buckled the doors but the man escaped with only minor injuries.

Police said the incident in Halifax on Saturday "could've been worse" and warned people to follow safety advice.

The motorist was in stationary traffic in Fountain Street in the town at about 15:00 GMT on Saturday when the explosion happened.

It was so powerful it caused damage to windows at nearby businesses.

The road was closed while an investigation was carried out by police and the fire service.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said the cause of the "dramatic" incident was "excessive" air freshener use.

I'm surprised he could hear their questions.

Police: Man and goat taken on terrifying three-state drive

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) — A man stole a pickup truck with a sleeping passenger and a goat inside it and drove it all the way from Missouri to Oklahoma before releasing the terrified victim and animal and eventually being arrested, authorities say.

According to an arrest report, two men in the truck parked outside of an adult video store in Carthage, Missouri, early Wednesday morning. The driver went inside the store and the passenger fell asleep. When the passenger awoke, a masked man was driving the truck and pointing a gun at his head, Tulsa TV station KOTV reported.

The Sand Springs Police Department said on Facebook: “OK 2020, it only took you 4.5 hours to get weird. Let's slow down on the carjacking-goatnapping calls for the remainder of the year.”
No one is saying why the two men were taking a goat to an adult video store. What happens in Carthage, Missouri stays in Carthage, Missouri.

'Weird' is perhaps overdoing it somewhat, but the whole story is decidedly odd.

Alan Turing’s OBE medal, PhD cert, other missing items found in super-fan’s Colorado home by agents, says US govt

Shock discovery after Brit super-boffin's stuff disappears decades earlier


More than 250 items belonging to super-Brit Alan Turing, including his OBE medal, that went missing decades ago were found hidden behind a bathroom wall in America, according to new court documents.

The items, which include photos of the revered mathematician and school reports from his teenage years, vanished 36 years ago from the Sherborne boarding school he attended in Dorset, UK. Turing’s mother had, a few years prior, donated the belongings to the school. Turing died in 1954 from cyanide poisoning although suicide is strongly suspected.

The woman accused of the theft, Julia Mathison Turing, visited the school in 1984, and when left unattended, it is claimed, stole the items, leaving a note that read: “Please forgive me for taking these materials into my possession. They will be well taken care of while under the care of my hands and shall one day all be returned to this spot.”

In 2018, she approached the University of Colorado, claiming to be Turing’s daughter, and offered the possessions for display, alongside artwork she made based on the documents, it is alleged. But investigations by the university quickly revealed Turing had no daughter – he was gay and persecuted as such in the UK – and raised the alarm.

Armed with a federal search warrant, US Homeland Security agents raided her house and, it is claimed, uncovered a treasure trove of Turing memorabilia, including letters that she had exchanged over the years with the bursar of the boarding school.

According to court documents filed by the American government, it appears she had been carrying the belongings with her for the past 30 years as she moved from Arizona to California to Colorado, and had got away with the theft in large part because she returned some items to the school a few years and claimed to have retained only a single photograph.

The school did not have an inventory of the memorabilia, and took her at her word, we're told. But the 256 items belonging to Turing, allegedly found by agents stashed in a leather briefcase hidden behind a removable piece of wall in her bathroom, tell a different story.
It's a substantial article so have a look here for the rest:

As an aside, Bletchley Park is a little over twenty miles from home and I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never been there.

If they didn't send a car for you it's their loss.

‘Large boulder the size of small boulder’ blocks highway in Colorado

Name:  Boulder of indeterminate size.jpg

Quote:
Travel got a little rocky Monday in Colorado after a “large boulder the size of a small boulder” came crashing down on Highway 145 near Telluride.

The San Miguel Sheriff’s Office tweeted out a photograph of the 10,000-pound boulder that blocked the eastbound lane on highway 145.

The photograph captioned “large boulder the size of a small boulder” went viral on Twitter with more than 6,000 replies, 28,000 retweets, and 147,000 likes.

One person replied “I don’t even know how to react to this. It’s like “Large mountain lion the size of a small mountain lion is attacking ppl. Be careful.”

Another said, “Can we be sure that it is not a small boulder the size of a large boulder?” It’s clear there was definitely some confusion over the actual size of the boulder.
I've stayed in medium size Boulder.

Funnily enough, that's also in Colorado.

Either that boulder has a big ego; or, whoever captioned the photo has rocks in their head.

Turns out, when you see a small boulder it's bigger than you think.
